And in a new political earthquake tonight, Labour Leader Ed Miliband said that there should be zero tolerance of anti-semitism. Anti-Semitism Industries Inc fell 450 points on the news, and Miliband was immediately attacked by Boris Johnson for “once again suggesting to nice Saudi Arabian and Qatari mutilators with lots of money to invest in London that somehow we are not open for business because of ridiculous outdated left wing ideological poppycock”.
